 At the invitation of the Archbishop of Ranchi,
His grace Telespore P. Toppo,
the province decided to respond to the needs of
the people of Gadalodma and
open a mission in the parish of Gadlodma
59 K. M. from the city of Ranchi in December 1997.
It is a parish among the tribal people.
It is 19 km from the main Road and
without any possibility of public transport, electricity and
running water.
 

The sisters are fully involved in pastoral works,
education of the children and
medical work.

In 2004
we started a dispensary
at the request of the people of this area
who had no opportunity to get any medical treatment.

 Thanks to the Sisters,
who shared one room of our convent for this purpose.
Now the people are regularly visited
by the Sisters in their families and
the sick get the necessary care in the dispensary.
The people of the parish were repeatedly requesting the Sisters
to begin a hostel for the girls.
In the rainy season they cannot send the children to the schools,
since they have to cross the rivers and
due to certain other inconviences.
Since the Sisters did not have place to accommodate the children
we could not do so.
 
But in June 2005,
seeing the misery of these girls the Sisters decided to spare one more room of the convent and accommodate the girls
who were desperately in need.
Now we have just 7 children, who stay with us
but if we have many more requests
which we can respond to,
if we have a hostel built for this purpose.
We count on the providence of God and
good will of the people.
